Thanks for writing to us.
It would be helpful if you could specify the exact constiutuents of the tablet concerned. From the description it seems to be a mild pain killer. An orthopedic evaluation and focused treatment will be more helpful.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Hello Ram

Tab Rootcal CT is a calcium supplement. As an adult, keeping your calcium intake between 1,000 and 1,200 mg daily may help prevent bone loss or weakening

Side effects: 1.You may experience infrequent or difficult bowel movements, which may be accompanied by nausea or abdominal bloating or cramping

2. If you have high blood calcium levels, you may experience side effects of weakness, nausea or vomiting, severe constipation, dry mouth or increased urination. Left untreated, elevated blood calcium levels may induce heart-related problems such as a heart attack.

As your mother is taking this tab. at this age specially female are suffering from calcium deficiency. So you can take this tab. daily once a day and keep check on S. Calcium level. If S. Calcium level is in normal range you can stop taking the medicine.
